Bruce Murduck advised (on the MURDUCK-L Mailing List) of the existence of MURDOCH University in Australia, and Sir Walter MURDOCH, after whom the institution was named.
The main URL for the institution can be found at http://www.murdoch.edu.au. Additional pages, http://www.murdoch.edu.au/about/murdoch.html, and http://www.murdoch.edu.au/about/murdoch.html#sirwalter, lead to the information that the University was named after Sir Walter MURDOCH who was a distinguished Australian essayist and biographer, Foundation Professor of English (1912-1939), and Chancellor of The University of Western Australia (1943-1948). Born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, he died on 30 July, 1970, aged about 96 years, just 4 years before the University bearing his name opened its doors.
(June 16 1998).
Editor's Note: If anyone has any biographical or genealogical information concerning Sir Walter, they are encouraged to send the information to the MURDUCK-L List...

William McMaster MURDOCH was born on 28th February 1873 at No.3 'Sunnyside', Barr Hill, Dalbeattie, the fourth son of Captain Samuel MURDOCH and Jane (or 'Jeannie') Muirhead,..."
- Editor's Note: The page referenced above contains information about William MURDOCH's early life, as well as some remarkable photos. There are links to pages that deal with William's later career with the White Star Line, and the RMS Titanic episode as well, at http://www.dalbeattie.com/titanic/. Interesting...
Henry Foster sent in word of a MURDOCH Coat of Arms from an Irish site. He advises "Like most "ie" domains this too is sort of slow, so a lot of patience is called for.."
(Mar 8 1998)
J. David Murdock advises that the "Family genealogy for the descendants of James Alan MURDOCH can be found here. James first appeared in the colonies 1771 when he built a home in Marbletown outside of Kingston in Ulster County, New York. He may have been born in Perth, Scotland."
(Feb 26 1998)(Updated Jan 26 1999).
J. David Murdock advises that this is the URL for the Home page for Clann Mhuirich which is Gaelic for the "Children of MURDOCH". The English, following the '45 outing, listed the clan as the "Macphersons" because that was the surname of the chief.
(Feb 26 1998).
Jim Murdoch wrote "There didn't seem to be anything on the surname MURDOCH on the www so I decided to put something together. It's early days and I'm sure has a long way to go. If you're a 'Clan' member or just interested to Scottish Roots please have a look."
(Feb 20, 1998).
- Editor's Note: Hmmm. Heavy on graphics, so it takes quite a bit of time to load......

June Shaputis has a new web page active - a very impressive collection of family data, tracking a descendancy from William MURDOCH, born c1794 in Campbellton (Campbeltown), Argyll, Scotland, a cabinet & furniture maker in later life, and his wife Isabella CRAWFORD. They were married on 15 Oct. 1814, in Lochwinnoch, Renfrew, Scotland. Isabella was born c1795. The spelling of the surname evolved to MURDOCK in the US.
(Feb 11, 1998)(Updated Feb 11, 1999).
- Editor's Note: A quick perusal suggests that certain family members entered the US through New Orleans in the mid 1840's, and established themselves in the midwest (Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, and so on).
David Evans Murdock wrote "I just got a copy of some software that allows me to put my pedigree chart on the web. Down towards the bottom of the page is a reference to the InterneTree. Since my tree is big, it does take some time to load."
